Rants & Raves for Thursday, August 29, 2013

VALDOSTA — To the disgruntled pizza delivery person, delivery fees are automatically included in the price of the pizza when you order it for delivery. It clearly states "delivery fee" on the receipt. You’re not a waiter, you brought a pizza in a cardboard box to the door.

I respect my military friends, but I find it amusing that many of them have the silly little notion that whatever worked in the military will work in the civilian world.

The person suggesting Berrien County is broke must not be a taxpayer. The county had surplus budgets three consecutive years and paid off over $1.5 million of a $4.5 million debt . Accomplished while reducing the millage rate. As a taxpayer I feel very fortunate to have Commissioners who manage expenses and require accountability from all departments.

Does anyone know if you can sue for your medical information being told to others by employees and the best lawyer to use for that? Thank you.

I understand how the booster clubs work, but you would think that all of the school-related groups would work together. Teachers have been furloughed and the schools are scrounging for education-related funds, but we have a new scoreboard! If your spouse lost their job, would you let the electricity be turned off, while you bought a new car, because the money was in your ‘new car account?’

When I'm walking or riding my bike, I want to see what's coming at me so I can get out of the way. I don't want to be hit and never see what hit me. We need more sidewalks so we don't have to ride or walk in the street and obstruct traffic. It's not safe on the roads anymore.....not even in your car!

    Here’s an idea. Learn basic math before posting numbers about crime rates. The US has 1 violent crime for every 26 citizens not 1 per 262. Geesh.

    To the ranter about the A/C in the jails, you are 100 percent right. The male and females should be treated equal. Neither side should have any A/C. If I am struggling to put gas in the car to get to work to put food on my family’s table and not running our A/C to keep down our living cost then why should those parasites get their three squares a day, cable TV and A/C? Put them in tents and pink outfits and feed them PB&J that comes out of their own funds. Yes, just like Sheriff Joe out in Arizona.

    It seems people in this town, and especially those in my church are not happy unless they are complaining about something. Today’s earth-shaking rant is that the choir members are too noisy when they change into their robes before the Mass. Give it a rest or you won’t have a choir.

    Funny, the people criticizing immigrants coming here looking for a better life for their family, are only here because their ancestors immigrated here for a better life for their family.

    Of the proposed 75 million that is needed to teach the students of Lowndes County for one school year, 55 million of that goes towards salaries. I don't want to hear no complaints about teachers salaries or furloughs again.

    Is it another sign of the times that people are too lazy to send thank you notes? I’ve bought four wedding gifts and two baby shower gifts since April 1. To date, I've received just one thank you note. It’s just good manners!

    It cracks me up when people say they don't want to be in a business or location where people are carrying weapons. My husband is a police officer and when he's off duty, he always carries concealed. I have a strong feeling that you might be happy one day that one of the hundreds of off duty officers are "packing" if you ever have a need for them!

    People rant on here, but don't bother to attend the County Commission's meeting about the tax increase. I bet you don't vote either. If not, you forfeit your chance to gripe. Just hush!

    Some hillbillies have more money than you do, they just don't flaunt it. Most are hard working, good people, unlike the wealthier, selfish, spoiled, inconsiderate brats. You can lose all your money and education in a blink of an eye. Be thankful God has allowed you to be or have what you do and treat others as you want them to treat you.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!
